Abstract

A recently proposed alternative to conventional prism-type electro-optic solid-state deflectors is the single interface deflector. Whereas these deflectors are comparable in performance to prism-type deflectors, they are far simpler in construction. This simplicity obviously has the advantages that it reduces fabrication time and cost and allows for easier optimization. Less obviously, but more advantageously, the simplified geometry provides, for the first time to our knowledge, the ability to achieve a completely solid-state two-dimensional beam deflector. We also detail how the two-dimensional deflector can be further augmented by the addition of intensity and color switching to the device.
